Survival: Saving Endangered Migratory Species is an informative warning against the threat facing many species and a stunning celebration of their beauty. Mankinds ruthless exploitation of the natural world has already driven many wild animals to the brink of extinction. Among the most threatened are many migratory species; because in most cases these species cross national boundaries, the need for international conservation efforts is particularly urgent. Albatrosses and petrels, migratory water-birds and birds of prey; sharks, whales, dolphins, and other marine mammals; West African forest elephants, gorillas, and desert antelopes – these are just some of the key species that are the subject of this meticulously researched book, which is supported by maps and illustrated with world-class wildlife photography.
